# Why is the % symbol not showing with XeTeX?

I'm using XeTeX and my % symbol is not showing when I compile to PDF! I've added my code below. I've gone through the XeTeX companion guide (maybe not very thoroughly) and Googled, but I can't find out why this is happening. I would totally appreciate anyone telling me why it's not working and how to fix it.

\begin{description} \fontspec[]{ArchitectsDaughter} As 1\% RF = 1 cM, two genes which lie 100 cM apart should have a recombination frequency of 100 \% \end{description}


Thanks in advance!

BTW, I'm using XeTeX and LaTeX at the same time... if this bit of information is helpful...

EDIT:

Apparently my font doesn't have a % glyph... and now I feel like a total dork for not coming to that conclusion sooner.

Please post a full minimal example (starting \documentclass and ending \end{document}) –  Joseph Wright Feb 19 '11 at 9:19
Okay, I've added that. –  Halime Feb 19 '11 at 10:27

This minimal example

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\begin{document}
\fontspec[]{Minion Pro} As 1\% RF = 1 cM, two genes which lie 100 cM apart should have a recombination frequency of 100\%
\end{document}


gives the expected output. I am guessing that your Architects Daughter font does not have a % glyph. Check it's character map at Font Squirrel.

You are very right... I should have checked that first! Thanks for help! –  Halime Feb 19 '11 at 10:42
